    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    One implies you might be an athletic spaz who covers crap technique with raw powah
    Without qualification, this is what it usually means. If someone is good (technique wise) and strong, I will tell them they are good and astrong as hell.
    There is no cheating, there is only jiu-jitsu.

    Then you are also an asshole, IMO.

    I'm not sure how "tweaking the sore knee doing a move that doesn't target the knee or even usually result in a submission, once" is "repeatedly going for the sore knee"

    It was twice, hence, repitition. Also, I dunno about you, but my knee (MCL) IS fucked up right now, and when people try to make me do the splits, it fucks with my knee.

    Actually, the second time you can see he specifically keeps the legs much closer together, not even going for the split and using it as a sweep, and obviously doesn't hurt the knee since Uematsu doesn't respond to it as anything other than a sweep.

    I see where you're coming from, Cracky. I've repeatedly fractured both tibias, and on occasion some jackass will pass my guard and purposefully grind his knee across the inside of my shin.

    Fucking bastard.

    In defense of Eddie, though, most of his documented techniques involve attacking the legs when the opponent stands. Hell, BJJ 101 teaches you to counter a standing opponent by letting go or attacking the legs in one way or another. Since Eddie's game is all about guardwork, it would be extremely counter intuitive for him to let go of the guard.

    Yeah, it's lame to attack an injury (even indirectly)...but if Naoya doesn't want his legs targeted, he should keep his legs out of the way.

    I've been waiting awhile to say this in all honesty, and the opportunity has finally arrived.

    YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT, NOW STFU

    I agree with Satori.

    LOL. Yes, explain to me how deeply wrong about this I am, ICY. I'm all atwitter waiting for you to explain the meaningful details of half-guard sweeping I'm ignorant about.

    Any half-guard sweep that isn't pin-and-roll based torques the knee. Not in a noticeable way if your knee isn't fucked up, but it sure as **** does if it is. I know that because the guys are my club use (or attempt to use) those sweeps on me at every class. That one Bravo was using in particular. It hurts like a ************. Sometimes I have to tap to the sweep, not a sub, just the position. It feels like my leg is about to come apart. Because it IS.

    I'm pretty sure you know more about the technical side of half-guard sweeps than I do, but I know for an abosolute FACT that those sweeps torque the connective tissues in the knee. So, without further ado, eat a fat dick.
